This show has been called one of the best, one of the most overrated, has had great AUDs circulate and really messed-up SBDs. The location and venue seem to play heavily into opinions as well as the attention given the Dancing>Franklin's sequence.
First Set. Jer's burst in Jack Straw is beyond reason and it's also an ace Candyman. Everybody is ON and the drummers are in sync for Me & My Uncle. The rest of the set is average early Brent. Big River has a few miscues, and somebody loses the thread (no spoilers here...), along with mixing problems, but it's not a trainwreck. Brown Eyed Women has a lyrics jumble but some good moments. It's still early for Easy to Love You - the 4th one, and still tentative (I think it's Brent's best song & I dig a strong one). Minglewood has "T for NYC"; did Bobby think he was still at MSG? The rest is kind of draggy but still GOGD.
Second Set. The attractive focus of the show seems to be on the sequence at the top of the set. It's a decent-enough Dancing but the Franklin's is all aces. For comparison, though, check the Dancin'>Franks on 11/9. It's weird that they did Franklin's both nights here. He's Gone is a well-played but very mellow version until the end, where it goes into a sorta-kinda-Caution jam. The Other One gets out there enough in the last few minutes to be notable. Phil stays for part of Drums, which have a full stop. Bobby makes Not Fade Away a bit more than usual. Around & Around just isn't tight, but Bobby gets to use his skating rink lyrics for this hockey shed in a decent One More Saturday Night. Wife say don't get crater?
1st Set: B-
2nd Set: B-
Overall = 3½ stars
Jack Straw - Jer having a beyond-reason burst
Candyman - flows on the Jack Straw energy, new keys guy digs in
Franklin's Tower - towering version
SOURCES: This show has received much attention source-wise. Most sources are way too Brent-heavy but even the AUDs have prominent keys. The SBDs are flat - thank the gods for giving us the Seamon matrix 105234 (adding back the natural sound of the hall and the PA stacks). The Groves matrix goes out of sync. For decades there were decent AUDs, and SBDs with wild pitch fluctuations and other problems, but the miller.98950 (the fixed version of fix.miller.98561) has, after several improvement generations, fixed all of the issues except for some tape curl or other extant artifacts. It sounds better than the official (even when pitch-corrected) in many places. All sources have an AUD patch for Minglewood. The version in the 30 Trips box set runs too slow and needs +2%. It's not the only official release pitched incorrectly, btw. It also edits the gaps and cuts several tunings.
All in fun Smitty, to some of us it's hilarious that 70 miles from Boston or Foxboro stadium is considered "remote". How many days travel is that for New Englanders?

First, Brent's keys setup is ideal here; a 'Dynoed' Fender Rhodes electric piano (see http://tinyurl.com/yz6yepa for details), Hammond B3 organ with Leslie speakers, clavinet, and a Mini Moog synthesizer. He blended these tones in with the band's sound as if they had been missing from it before. The bell-like punch of the Rhodes piano, the surges and swells of the B-3, and the eerie sonic wails of his synths on later songs like "Feel Like a Stranger" and "Space" have always impressed me. This fall tour is filled with shows where the band is just 'on' and full of energy, and they owe that in large part to Brent. His vocals are perfectly pitched as well. Too bad is songs were shit, but Easy to Love You is occasionally listenable. Regardless, Brent really helped to gel the bands '80s-era sound, but these early shows of experimentation are some of my favorite.
A+ (Thanks Charlie!)
Subject: Mission, Completed
Well, all it took was Mother Nature in her glory- incredible stars and an *almost* full moon, a crackling fire, a $200 old boombox and this show... (Oh yeah, and some really fresh corn on the tongue ;-)
I could almost see the look of "understanding" coming over their faces !
(((THANKS AGAIN, CHARLIE ! )))
You'll never know the love you are spreading.
Set 2 - just golden - this is really a vehicle for Brent moreso than Jer - just listen to how FUNKED OUT Dancin' is, and check out the interplay between Jer and Brent on Franklin's Tower - they are here as easy as you please, with absolutely no hurry at all. I myself totally welcome Brent's new sound - if you just listen to how dead the keys section was in early '79, even on the keeper shows, yeah, Brent really did what he needed to do, and unapologetically at that.
The suite from He's Gone carries a fantastic *hard* jam into the Other One. Post-Drums is fine enough, since we've had our cup filled several times over already; I am pleased that the boys still double-timed A&A in this era - they should have kept that up! After losing Donna that tune was never the same after peaking in 77-78, but here it's a completely rockin' conclusion to the set.
Great show, totally worth its accolades - the fall '79 tour is picking up steam!
Subject: Passing through 79
Well, I don't know what happened during set break but the band just comes alive. Great second set with many high points (Phil creates more than his usual thunder on OO)but the Dancing>Franklin's just steals the show and makes this my favourite set of 79 so far.
Subject: Thank you Charlie MIller
All the soundboard sources of this show have had really noticeable speed changes during Dancin. I got used to it from my tape-listening days and was very pleasantly surprised to hear the hard work that Joe B. Jones and Charlie Miller have put into bringing this source back into a new life.
It's a fresh listen to this classic gem of a show.
I also highly recommend downloading one of the audience recordings of this show for very loud listening on a good sound system. As if you didn't know that already.
Subject: The keyboard thing
Had to get that out. Brent would've sounded awesome with some decent equipment. Too bad...
This is the version to listen as Charlie Miller has done an excellent job of transferring this wonderful show and fixing damaged areas with AUD patches. Well done. By comparison the other versions are muddy. BTW the next night is just as good.
Subject: It's a keeper
Incredible sound, incredible playing - the Caution jam into Other One is one for the ages
Listen to this show.
